The Quincy Amtrak station is a train station in Quincy, Illinois, United States served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. The station is one of the namesake stations of the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad (CB&Q), but today serves as the western terminus of Amtrak's Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg trains. It was built in 1985 and was modeled after a former streetcar station of the early 20th Century.[2]

The city has received $6 million to build a new intermodel terminal closer to downtown. In addition to serving as an Amtrak station, it would become the city's Burlington Trailways station and a transfer hub for Quincy Transit Lines.[3] The location has not been finalized yet, but the planners currently favor a terminal near 2nd/Oak intersection, at the site of the city's original train station.[4] However, the funds would not be enough to cover any new rail, which would limit the planners' options significantly.
